Position: Research Fellow
Institution: University College London
Department: UCL Queen Square Institute of Neurology - Wellcome Centre for Human Neuroimaging, Max Planck Centre for Computational Psychiatry and Ageing Research
Location: London, United Kingdom
Duties: The overarching aim of the project is to understand the role of memory in goal-directed decision making, with a particular focus on the modulating role of mood and depression symptoms. We investigate this using online, in-person, and and neuroimaging (magnetoencephalography or MEG) experiments. As part of this project, the candidate will design and conduct experiments, with analyses focusing on computational modelling, and multivariate neuroimaging approaches
Requirements: The successful candidate should have (or be close to obtaining) a PhD in a discipline such as computational, cognitive, or behavioural neuroscience, psychology, computer science or similar. Experience with computational modelling of behavioural data and with representational (decoding) approaches to human neuroimaging data is required. Solid knowledge of the learning and decision neuroscience literature is essential, as are familiarity with modern software development techniques, experience in programming, IT proficiency at advanced user level, and a high level of consideration and care for research subjects. Experience in acquiring and analysing fMRI, MEG or EEG data is desirable. Because of the nature of the work, a DBS check will be required
